Support Volt Germany

Donations to Volt Germany are tax deductible. You can get back up to 50% of your donation (see below). Every donated Euro is subsidised by the German state with up to 45 Cent and thus means a donation of 1,45 Euro to Volt Germany.

Volt is in the European Parliament!

With Damian Boeselager, Volt now has the first member of a pan-European party in the European Parliament. This is a first successful step. Volt does not only stand for European politics, but also for changing politics throughout Europe. And that can only succeed if we actively participate in shaping policy at all levels.

Why do we need your support?

In order to reach even more people with our ideas, we are dependent on your help. In addition to participating in elections at state or local level, we need your support in particular to finance our general public relations work via social media or the information and special events that regularly take place in our now over 170 city teams.

Our Supporting Membership

Are you a fan of Europe and do you support our idea of a federal Europe? Do you think - just like us - that it is time to rethink politics, but due to time constraints, you are not able to actively participate yourself? Or, for other reasons, you do not want to commit yourself directly to Volt by becoming a party member?

In this case our Supporting Membership is the best way to support us regularly.

Why your personal data are so important

Without them we cannot issue you with a donation receipt at the beginning of the following year.

All donations to Volt Germany by natural persons up to 3300 euros per year are subsidised by the German state with 45% party funding. However, this subsidy, which is important for us, does not apply to anonymous donations.

Anonymous donations over 500 Euro, i.e. donations without giving your personal data, may not be accepted by us due to legal requirements.

Donations from outside of Germany: Due to legal requirements we are only allowed to accept donations from abroad up to a maximum amount of 1,000 Euros. For donations exceeding this amount, we always require proof that you are a citizen of the European Union (e.g. a copy of an official identity document). In this case please contact our fundraising team in advance.

Tax deductibility & donation confirmations

As a private person, you can claim your donations to Volt Germany in your tax return up to an amount of 3,300 Euros per calendar year; in case of a joint assessment even up to a total of 6,600 Euros.

You can find further information, also on the subject of donation confirmations, on our information page:
